Charlie Sheen: Kobe Bryant Needs Tiger Blood After Miami Heat Crushes LA Lakers


Perhaps Los Angeles Lakers guard Kobe Bryant needed to heed advice from former "Two and a Half Men" sitcom star Charlie Sheen in his recent Guinness World Record-setting Twitter odyssey.

Captivating the world media's attention with guidance blasts of original, manic life mantras, Sheen is American pop culture's unofficial life guru and the country's current definition of "#winner".

Unfortunately that description does not apply to Bryant as #WINNING is exactly what Kobe didn't do tonight. 

"NBA Prediction: The Los Angeles Lakers Will Lose To the Miami Heat on March 10" - Published March 9, 2011

Faced against NBA superstar and two-time defending league MVP, LeBron James, and his powerful Miami Heat team, the same squad that had embarrassed Bryant and his defending champion LA Lakers in an ultra high-profile match-up on Christmas Day last year with a convincing 96-80 blowout victory at Staples Center in Los Angeles, Bryant again squandered an opportunity to redeem himself and his team, and proved again, once and for all, that the Miami Heat, not the Los Angeles Lakers, are the "team to beat" in the NBA.

Ironically, the Heat, who are the most despised team in the NBA after recruiting James along with former Toronto Raptors standout, Chris Bosh, to play with their franchise superstar and former NBA Finals MVP Dwyane Wade last summer, have been on a tough five game losing streak prior to their win against the Lakers.

That five game slide, which was part of six losses in seven games, was the longest active losing streak in the NBA, shared with the Indiana Pacers, and even longer that the current losing streak owned by LeBron's former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers, who themselves set the all-time NBA losing streak record this season.
